Screw a PK screw in the hole in the top of the oiler and lever it out with nail pulling pliers etc or a slide hammer or even a stack of washers under the head of the screw as you tighten it down.

Search ‘oilers’. Read applicable threads, particularly the ‘press button oilers’.

Hopper has it right, the method works without generating any debris

I've used screw extractors to good effect. A magnetic pick-up tool can be useful to make sure there isn't any broken spring in the hole. Any brass swarf might be a little more difficult, although tiny spoon ended dental picks can come to the rescue.

Sometimes you can just tap a small screwdriver under the lip and lever them out
